Pillars of Eternity Hands-On Preview
Come for the dialogue, stay for the corpse-riddled trees.

A monumental Kickstarter success, Obsidian's Pillars of Eternity finally releases today. Our own illustrious Music Overlord, Stephen Meyerink, has been playing the game in preparation to bring you a timely review.

Then he failed to deliver.

Okay, not really, but after spending time with it, it was apparent that this is the kind of game not served by a "get it up on day one at all costs"-type of review. It's a complex, and very involved game, and we all felt it best that it's more important for a review to be comprehensive and thorough than one that's posted on day one but lacks key details.

As such, Stephen has written an all-new Pillars of Eternity preview based on his time with the game thus far, and I think you'll get an idea how he feels about the game regardless. Look for a review sometime next week for the final word!
